So I don’t know if you follow me on facebook, or twitter… or even instagram (you should by the way) but on Saturday I went to the Graco Snugride safety event hosted by Babies R Us. This was a kind of kickoff for the new car seat that they just came out with based on the change in safety guidelines for the ages children should be rear facing in a car seat. Just in case you didn’t hear about that yet, it is birth up to two years old. Huge change from what was acceptable when I was a kid, seriously how did any of us live to adulthood?!
So at the event we got to play with the seat, check out the matching stroller and meet other blogging moms. Pretty cool! I was hanging out free from the kids that day and my husband was home with the monsters. He called me a couple times to say “Why are you doing this, how could you just leave me here?! I’ve been cleaning all day and there isn’t a noticeable difference in the apartment…why won’t they NAP??!!!” Ah yes, basically the same call he gets from me at work all the time but today I was out with my Mom-in-law and Sister-in-law and no kids for us!! Do you know how awesome it feels to hear other people’s screaming kids in a toy store and just for once get to be the stranger who flashes you the smile of understanding and commiseration. To all those harassed parents dragging their kids through BRU on a Saturday, I have been there and I feel your pain!!
Anyway, I’m getting away from the actual point of this post. The carseat is pretty awesome!
